Textured stripes Knitted Blanket No. 3

I am loving doing these monochrome blankets for a custom order. They define the pattern so well.

Here is the third textured stripe blanket. This is where you can find the free pattern. I have made this in two different color combinations before. Here is the ravelry link for that.

I just used white, two shades of grey and black for this and went for the gradient.

Finished dimensions: 32X39”

Sunburst Hexagon Blanket No. 2

Hi there,

I have been wanting to try this color combination for a while and I love it. It slightly out of my comfort zone but still can blend in really well. Let me know what you think. I have made this blanket before, check-it-out.

So this blanket is a result of a number of patterns

1. Pattern for the actual sunburst hexagons can be found here. This is a free pattern and is super easy. you can use scrap yarn or play with colors on this one.

2. Joining – I used a continuous join as you go method for hexagon blankets. A tutorial for which can be found here. I love using continuous join as you go for the twists between the hexagons. So pretty.

3. Edging – I squared of the edges before doing a border by doing half hexagons on one side and just long stitches on the other. The border itself 2 rounds of granny stitch. One round of 1sc ch2 in blue. One round of granny. One round of 1sc ch2 in maize and one round of granny stitch.

This is so addictive and too much fun. I couldn’t put it down once I started making the circles. And you don’t have to do the flowers in gradients of colors you can do it using scrap yarn. There is so much room to play around with colors here. and they blend really well. I have used this pattern before as sunburst squares but sunburst hexagons are super duper fun. I even made halves to square off the edges.

Sunburst baby blanket No. 2

Hello fellow crocheters,

IMG_1451

Here is my second sunburst granny squares. I really loved the colors and wanted to use them together.

This is my second blanket in this pattern. You can look at the first one in pink and teals here. The original pattern for this blanket is available for free here.  Last time I just the join as you go method but this time I went for the classic seamless join by attic 24. I really preferred the join-as-you-go because it saves so many ends to join in. But initially I wasn’t sure how many squares I was going to put together. So this method worked really well for me.

This is such a great pattern to play with colors. Loving it.
